Ready to shift entirely to T2: GoAir to DIAL

New Delhi: Budget carrier GoAir has told Delhi International Airport Private Ltd (DIAL) that it is open to shifting entirely from Terminal 1 to T2 and does not want split operations.

This is the latest twist in the ongoing tussle over shifting one-third domestic flights of IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir to T2.

DIAL has told these three airlines that their flights to and from Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kolkata will be allowed to operate only from T2 from October-end when the winter schedule starts.
The low-cost carrier, owned by Wadia Group, has only 25 planes in its fleet. It carries out 40 flight movements in Delhi every day and does not fly on international routes as of now. On the other hand, 141 plane-strong IndiGo and SpiceJet that has a fleet of 55 aircraft operate international flights too. So, they have domestic flights flying out of T1 and foreign ones from T3.
